This summer, our staff volunteered at Mendota’s Westside Youth Center during their summer camp. We provided lunch and arts-and-crafts activities. During the month of July, every Friday at Westside Youth Center, we began lunch time with every kid’s favorite food, pizza!
After lunch was met with an enrichment art lesson and a hands on arts-and-craft activity. Kids learned about the art history and immediately were able to apply what they learned in an activity. Kids were able to make abstract art, make a replica of sculptures using foil paper and learned about various colors, shadows and perceptions of shapes.
Thanks to Westside Youth Center, AMOR can already be of service to the community of Mendota and help in any way possible. Our mission has always been to improve the health status of the communities we serve. Another reason why our project in Mendota will be for the community. The three building complex will serve farm laborers, their families and others in the surrounding rural communities of west Fresno County
AMOR selected Mendota, CA. as a target area for its first domestic project to bring much needed services to underserved farm workers and their children in the Central Valley– the breadbasket of the world. This area has been designated by the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) as a shortage area for primary care, mental health and dental services. AMOR’s goal is to mobilize an alliance of safety-net providers and family and youth resources for the community.
